An investment plan enables our client’s aging assets to be overhauled in a structured programme to turn around falling production volumes and meet increased market demand.

Operating on aging assets, our client faced a situation where production volumes were decreasing and maintenance costs rising, leaving it struggling to meet rising demand.

Plan tailored to the site and our client’s priorities

Royal HaskoningDHV was approached to draw up a long-term investment plan for the brownfield setting. Our multi-disciplinary team looked at technical and non-technical aspects of the site in close co-operation with internal departments. A risk-based approach was used to define what was required and when.

The resulting plan includes overhaul, replacement and extension of vital assets in a structured approach tailored to the site and our client’s priorities. It includes descriptions of scope, time lines and cost estimates. It enables our client to reach the required production volumes while staying compliant with local requirements and legislation across all engineering areas and the environment.

A special project team will execute the plan, working alongside the existing operational and maintenance departments. We delivered a blueprint for this arrangement, which included forecasts of man-hours and profiles for positions required.
